Meridian Yoga and Acupuncture to Shake Off Winter

Meridian Yoga and Ear Acupuncture to Shake Off Winter
and move in the direction of fresh possibilities
Saturday, March 18, 2023

Just as the crocuses push through the frozen earth we too will emerge from our winter’s slumber come springtime. Join Daniel Orlansky and acupuncturists Lynda Danzig and Ilana Margalit for a two-hour Spring Equinox workshop where we will shake off winter and move the energy in the direction of fresh possibilities. In Chinese medicine, spring is the wood element, ruled by the liver and gallbladder meridians. By allowing the wood element to flow through us, we acquire flexibility, and the clarity of vision to see our true direction.

Beginning with gentle breath work, meridian stretching and Qigong, students will finish in a restorative yoga position to receive an ear acupuncture treatment specifically designed to enhance the wood element, helping us grow to our full potential by balancing our energies.

The ear or auricular acupuncture treatment will last about 20–25 minutes. Ear acupuncture is based on the idea that the ear is a microsystem of the entire body. This idea originates from Ancient Chinese texts, and was developed more fully in the 1950s by Dr. Paul Nogier of France. The treatment offered at this workshop will use the points that calm the nervous system (Point Zero), relax the mind (Spirit Gate), and support emotional balance (the Auricular Liver Point.)

Time: 3:00 – 5:00 pm
Cost: $49  Limited to 16 students, but currently sold out.

Acupuncture is an important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine that can be traced back to at least 2500 years ago, playing a pivotal role in preventing and treating diseases for thousands of years in China. Numerous types of research have shown that acupuncture can regulate nonspecific immune functioning.
